I really now enjoy die-cutting and recently bought the eBosser! It is simply MAR-VELL-OUS!!! Takes all the strain away from turning handles on Cuttlebug, etc. Altho, and some of you will appreciate this, I inadvertently cut through the magnetic sheet!!! I now have a couple of frames for photos on fridge door! Ah well, we all have to learn some time and we do learn from our mistakes! I have my staple Spellbinders but simply LOVE Tattered Lace Dies and now buy the magazines. I think Stephanie Weightman is so talented, and along with Nancy Watts, they make a great team. I have used one of her dies (the flourish off the Rocking Horse) here along with what is in my die-cutting box. As I really enjoy Decoupage, I made the new baby card for a friend's new grand-daughter, and the boy/girl card using Tattered Lace and Marianne Dies.


Three cards for special friends. I don't know how I managed it, but I forgot one of my best friend's 50th birthday and had to give her a 'belated' card! I felt awful. The 16 card was for another friend's daughter and she loves Art Deco, hence the card choice. And finally, the 40th card was for another friend's birthday and as she had a party,  and is not one to wear a dress, I couldn't resist making this style of card. 

This is a card I made for a friend's anniversary. This time it is from My Craft Studio, Deco Follies. My friend Ann gave it to me as a 'wee cheer-me-up' pressie and I have used it several times as I love the images on it. I used papers from Docrafts and decoupaged the images, adding feathers and some flowers to decorate. 

Happy Summer Crafting!

Have not been on blog for such a long time, I have forgotten how it works! Anyways, here goes.  I have been busy over past couple of years crafting but just seem to forget to come on and update blog - will really have to try harder and do it!

Going to start at the end of last year, Christmas actually. Here are a couple of cards I made for my wonderful Aunt and my very best friend from childhood and her partner. They are from the Debbie Moore Art Deco Christmas CDRom and it is just fabulous, so many images to choose from! I hope you like what I created!
